Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

In this irresistible musical, the legendary dancing duo Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers (Top Hat) are at the pinnacle of their art as a feckless gambler and the shrewd dancing instructor in whom he more than meets his match. Director George Stevens (Woman of the Year) laces their romance with humour and clears the floor for the movie's showstopping dance scenes, in which Astaire and Rogers take seemingly effortless flight in a virtuosic fusion of ballroom and tap styles. Buoyed by beloved songs by Dorothy Fields and Jerome Kern – including the Oscar‐winning classic "The Way You Look Tonight" – Swing Time is an exuberant celebration of its stars' chemistry, grace and sheer joy in the act of performance.
